But the real scary part of this, is that it is applied to things or people who are not =. We know that even in the French Revolution (the birthplace of this creed) most people were more equal than other people, and it ended in all people being unequal, Robespierre ending up as the only equal person - and equality died with him on the guillotine.
So why is this notion so strong, when we all know it does not exist from a human point of view. In fact - its existence in the mathematical or axiomatic world of 1+1=2, is already under suspicion.
Or which part of equal do I not understand.
I do not know whether it is applicable to tests, that unrighteous institution of mankind - to test the IQ or knowledge of people. Why should it be tested when they are all equal?
I will have to give up my incorrect interpretation of molecular biology and realise that the DNA of all people are equal.
If one ponders it for a while one will come to the realisation that unequaltiy is really what makes the world go round and equality is what stifles development. This world is so rich and varied because it is acted upon by such rich and varied elements - be that people or inanimate things.
If we want to be equal, we will need to degenerate into a type of lifeless world where there is no initiative, no incentive, no ambition and no competition - what a dreary life that would be. None of us will need to work as we all have an equal right to eat and to live. We will all pay the same taxes, regardless of what we have or earn. Wouldn't that be nice !!!
Are the resources of this earth shared equally by all. If that which is easy to share is already not shared equally, what chance do we have to share our equality between ourselves?
The notion of democracy is that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time in more than half of the issues. That gives you a satisfaction rate of less than 12.5%. It could have reached an optimum of over 80% if people were treated more unequally, for the benefit of all - even for the person who voted against it to his own detriment, not understanding the consequences of his ignorance and issues really involved, as is specially prevalent in populistic and coercive societies.
Those I met from the more favourable species, were all because of their inequality, and those from the less favourable species were all from their innequality. They were only equal in their squalor, slavery and ignorance and in the hopelessness of their situation.
